We Demand Curtin University (WA, Australia) to Revoke Rosmah Mansor's Honorary Doctorate sign now

Calling all Malaysians, Australians, Curtin and WAIT (former name of Curtin) current students and alumni from Curtin's campuses in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia to sign this petition to demand Curtin University revoke Rosmah Mansor's honorary doctorate.

Rosmah Mansor, the wife of current Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters for "her dedication to early education" and the "advancement of women" by Curtin University. Further details can be found at Curtin's media release: http://news.curtin.edu.au/media-releases/curtin-award-recognises-wife-of-malaysian-prime-minister/

We strongly disagree with Rosmah being given this distinguished award. We want Curtin Univerity to revoke Rosmah's doctorate, as per Section 5.3 in its Honorary Awards and Procedures Guidelines.

We deem Curtin's reply on 16 Feb as unsatisfactory (found here https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=341479882562770). It does not explain or convince us why Rosmah is worthy of such an award. We would like Curtin to revoke Rosmah's honorary doctorate on the basis that there's insufficient evidence as to how she was found worthy in the first place.

Curtin's Honorary Awards Policy and Procedures: http://policies.curtin.edu.au/policies/viewpolicy.cfm?id=33040871-ffc3-11dc-b853-253dc30d60f2

In Section 5:3 Revocation of Award: The Council may, at its sole discretion, revoke an Honorary Award if the recipient has engaged in activities which have brought disrepute to the University; or whose continued association with the University would bring disrepute to the University.
